Return to Barr Lake

May 20, 2019

Richard Stevens:

The high today only reached 45 degrees and that was a little after midnight.  Winds were 6-7 mph with gusts to 10 mph.

I returned to Barr Lake (Adams) in the afternoon.  The Gray-cheeked Thrushes and Northern Waterthrush I found yesterday were not relocated.

The majority birds were Yellow Warblers.  A Tennessee Warbler fluttered about mile 8.8 (around the willows that hang over the main trail.

An Osprey was laying on the nesting platform.  No Barn Owls were found.  No Short-eared Owl appeared this evening around the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver).

Two Burrowing Owls have returned to the prairie dog village at West Cargo Road, south of Third Creek.
